Say Hello To Hayo'u

Stress. Everyone has it, everyone hates it and I'm all too familiar with it. In a weird way...I kind of like it. I feed off of it. However when someone recently told me stress affects my face, as well as my lifespan, I knew it was time to control this shit...

Stress causes a huge number of heath problems (heart disease, asthma, migraines, arthritis and name but a few) however when it comes to our appearance, stress can cause acne, dark circles, dry skin, redness, graying and thinning hair and premature ageing. Sadly, combating stress is challenging. Of course meditation, pampering sessions and prescription drugs are on hand to help, however I recently discovered a more alternative treatment that is side-effect-free and even more powerful. It is Hayo'u...

Date of Birth: 2015

History: CIRCA is an American beauty brand founded by the gorgeous Eva Mendes, who also doubles as the brand's Creative Director and model.

Review: Cloud Nine Wide Iron


As ya'll know, I've never been one to do too much to my hair. I love using interesting products to help maintain - and improve - hair health (shampoos, conditions, treatments, the usual BS etc.) but as for styling, it's either down au naturale or up in a messy top knot. Part of the reason being that my hair is fine and doesn't have a hope in hell of ever holding a hair style. However I recently used my friend's straighteners whilst prepping for a wedding. They gave me a smooth, shiny and more put together look which I became a little obsessed with.

So a few weeks later, after dreaming of my beautiful hair experience a few too many times, I got my hands on a pair of Cloud Nine Wide Iron straighteners and I have officially fallen in love...

A Day At Champneys Tring Health Spa

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to spend the day at the infamous Champneys spa resort in Tring. The purpose of this trip? To relax and get my body summer-ready. I succeeded.

It is the vision of one man, Stanley Lief, who 90 years ago pioneered the concept of holistic wellbeing, creating a place where people could escape the world’s cares and re-emerge revitalised. Champneys remains one of England's most famous health spas, offering health, fitness and wellbeing at your fingertips. As well as lashings of spa pampering of course…

Ingredients 101: Retinol


WTF: Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is considered to be one of the key ingredients in the fight against ageing.

Retinol is actually a weaker form of tretinoin (aka retinoic acid); the acid form of vitamin A. Tretinoin is highly effective at treating acne and acute promyelocytic leukaemia. It has also been used as a powerful treatment for skin aging. Tretinoin is so powerful that it is only available on prescription. However, its excellent skin benefits lead scientist to create retinol, a lighter, less aggressive form of tretinoin that can be used in over-the-counter beauty products.

The Benefit Brow Collection


Nothing impresses me more than a good strong brow. I spend hours perfecting mine and splash too much money on products that promise to keep them on fleek. So when Benefit recently released its new big brow collection, I had to get my hands on it.
